No fewer than 57 members of the Biafra Zionists Federation (BZF) were allegedly arrested in Enugu State earlier today, Sunday, May 30, 2021.
They were said to have been picked up in the morning shortly before the commencement of their Biafra Day parade.
Leader of the group, Barr. Benjamin Onwuka, claimed that policemen from Ogui Road Division stormed venue of their meeting and whisked away his members.
In a message he sent out on Sunday, the BZF leader said: “They arrested 57 of our members this morning. We were preparing to go for our Biafra parade.
“We are non-violent people, we are peaceful agitators. They should be released immediately, unconditionally, without charge, they committed no crime.
“We have informed the United States of this development,” he claimed.
Onwuka had a few days ago announced that they would storm the Michael Okpara Square, Enugu, today, for a Biafra parade.
When News Express called the PPRO of the Enugu State Police Command, Daniel Ndukwe, he said about 54 members of the group were picked because of the way they had gathered.
He, however, said they were taken to the Command Headquarters, addressed on the need to maintain peace and left to go immediately.
“They were not held at all,” he stressed.
